Another release that looks like a real cheap bootleg... Haven't the slightest idea about who the other members of the band or vocalists are, and since Ben Selvin seems to have left a really rich legacy of recordings (with a revolving door of competent but anonymous musicians), chances of finding the right line-up are microscopic... The same goes for exact recording dates. However - if there's any Selvin expert out there: feel free to educate us!

Here's a line-up from June 18th recording session I managed to find:

Bunny Berigan, Ruby Weinstein - trumpets
Tommy Dorsey - trombone
Benny Goodman - clarinet/alto sax
Lou Martin - alto sax
Hymie Wolfson - tenor sax
Ben Pobersky - violin
Rube Bloom - piano
Carl Kress - guitar
Hank Stern - tuba
Milt Schlesinger - drums/xylophone
Milt Coleman - ukulele/vocal
Ben Selvin - director

Name of the band is Chester Leighton & His Sophomores

Translucent Green vinyl.
